We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with friendly holidays Desma, Peter and Ebony. They were extremely knowledgeable not only on the local area but further afield which enabled us to better plan our tour. The bed was really comfortable and cosy especially as Desma had ensured that the room heater and electric blanket were switched on before we arrived. Other nice touches included soft towels, extra bedding and complimentary toiletries. I particularly enjoyed the homemade kumquat jam at breakfast.

Desma and Peter are lovely hosts, a really sweet couple. Also loved their dachshund. The bed and bedroom were very comfortable and clean. There was also ample room in the house and had all mod cons. The house is just off the A1 Princes Highway to/from Melbourne but also very quiet and serene. About a 10 minute drive to Lakes Entrance which has restaurants that are open late. I would highly recommend a stay here.
